Top 10 Most expensive houses in Singapore in 2019
For the super rich looking to invest in property, Singapore is a veritable playground. Just a couple of months ago we learned that Singapore is once again the second most expensive place in the world to invest in residential property, right behind sister Asian metropolis, Hong Kong.
The average home in Hong Kong costs US$1.235, or US$2,091 million/square foot compared to $USD874,372 or US$1,063/square foot in Singapore.
Price growth is slower in Singapore compared to its rivals. At just 1.1%, Hong Kong and third-place Shanghai will be steaming ahead in future years with their 5.5% and 11.2% growth rates. Indeed Singapore recently introduced cooling measures to encourage more controlled prices in the market, making it more favourable to buyers.
That said, if you’ve got the cash burning a hole in your pocket, why not look into one of these luxury pads that are available and for sale.
